Just doing the few personals I remember off the top of my head.

Alyssa-When we started solids at 4 months Teddy would try anything. We stuck to purees, fruits, and veggies and different baby cereals for a few months and then moved on to finger foods. Teddy was always a great eater and we just kind of followed his lead. Now he doesn't eat half as much but he will like the craziest things like goat cheese or a spicy taco,and now it is easier because I can just give him

I sooo need to rant... It's two things actually, a silly one and a scary one. First my MIL. I've said it before, and I'll say it again... She's a nice woman, and I love her. But... there are just a few things.... For instance, she is beyond frugal! I understand why, they spent so many years struggling financially that some things are just not going away. She is hunting for sales all the time, (even after I politely explained to her that the 80 cents she saved in X supermarket, were probably spent in gas and parking), she does everything from scratch, she never pays retail for clothes, and so on. Her latest thing is preserves... We both live nearby in a semi rural area. Next to her house is a pretty much abandoned fruit farm. And it hurts the poor woman to see the fruit falling from the trees and rotting on the ground. Her solution?? PRESERVES! About a month ago she sent me home with a bag full of quinces. I don't know if you are familiar with it, but making quince jelly and quince "meat" is one hell of a job!! I wasn't finished with that when she brought me a basket of apples and pears... And now it's a bag of bell peppers.... Hello lady! I have a one year old boy! It's kind of hard to find time to do this stuff!!!!! The scary rant is about my fertility/reproductive tract. As most of you know, I weaned Fede a month ago, and still no signs of AF. About a week ago, I started feeling some mild discomfort in my pelvic area. At first I didn't think much of it, but for the past two days, when I wipe I see strains of blood in my CM... It isn't AF... and the discomfort is turning sharper on my left side. So now I'm really worried that I'm having some trouble with my ovary. A ruptured cyst or something. I've had PCOS for years now, but never had any serious trouble and now I'm scared that this whole "pregnancy-BF-weaning" hormonal chaos did something to it. To make it worse, my Gyn doesn't answer the phone... I'm seriously thinking about getting an appt. with my uncle (OB-gyn), but I'm kind of terrified of the possibility of needing a check up... I mean I see the guy at family parties!!!! What would you do?

Mari - I would definitely go to the OB if you're concerned. It's better to get things checked out than to worry!

Given your history of PCOS, I would make an appointment to do some investigation. I would not go to my uncle though. I would just feel too, TOO weird about it. Is there another doctor in your area?

It sometimes takes a little while for your cycles to resume after breastfeeding. Mine never really got regular between Jonah and this current pregnancy (although we haven't fully weaned, so it's not quite the same as your situation). The little stains of blood could just be your body working up to the right hormonal level to produce a real period. Same for the pelvic discomfort.

Good luck! Get check out!

Greyson loved both pureed prunes and small pieces of whole prunes.

Oh no, Mari! I would check with a doctor if you are in pain! I hope this is just your body having a strange adjustment to getting back to normal cycles and nothing more. ((hugs))

Ash - Teddy's birthday photos are great. He is adorable! Is that your flat? It's lovely!

Alyssa - We started out with chicken for meat but now Selin will eat ground turkey, ground beef and any kind of meatball, lol. We don't eat pork and we haven't really pushed fish much so can't comment there.

AFM - Just wanted to pop in to say Selin has her first two teeth on the bottom (finally!) and four more are coming in on the top! We go to the ped on Friday for her checkup re: MRSA. I hope she's in the clear because I'm still getting the breakouts. She hasn't had any new breakouts since last Monday, which is promising.

Hugs Ruby. I am in a similar thing and am battling some of the same depression issues. I hope for both of us that things change soon!

We started Simon on rice around 4 months. He was showing so much interest in us eating we just started him with that and followed with pureed veggies. Around 7 or 8 months he got to where he wanted to feed himself so we started slowing giving him things to feed. Shortly after he figured that out he pretty well wouldn't eat anything off of a spoon unless it was from DH or I's plate/bowl. Now he is 100% self feeding and loves trying to figure out how the spoon/fork works.
